Colorful Cape Town is one of the Rainbow Nation’s three capital cities, and the departure point for your immersive voyage to explore South Africa. Don’t worry if you don’t get to explore a lot before you embark, we’ll be back to really see what Cape Town is all about after we call on four other South African ports.
In Port Elizabeth, embrace the sense of community (known locally as ubuntu) at a bustling market or at a local pub before embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime animal encounter at Addo Elephant Park. After a day at sea sailing along the South African coast, we arrive in Richards Bay. It’s a gateway to thrilling safari excursions inland, where you’ll discover sprawling wilderness, rolling hills, and exotic wildlife. The Indian-influenced city of Durban is up next. Wind your way past Victorian architecture and ornate mosques, stroll along the Golden Mile beach boardwalk, or venture outside the city to see the breathtaking Valley of 1,000 Hills. At the river port of East London, discover the only known dodo bird egg in the world, as well as other prehistoric beasts.
Couldn’t get enough of Cape Town? This South African country-intensive voyage returns for two nights so you can get your fill of this fabulous city. A trip out to the Cape Winelands is a must, and you can’t pass up the chance to dip your toes in two oceans at the same time.
